“The Duke and Duchess of Devonshire's latest Derbyshire venture is a companion to the Devonshire Arms at Beeley, both being former pubs on their Chatsworth estate (they also own and operate the Devonshire Arms and Devonshire Fell on their Bolton Abbey estate in Yorkshire). Like the one at Beeley, the Devonshire Arms at Pilsley has now been modernised and updated, with seven bright and cheerful bedrooms (each with an excellent bathroom) distinguished by the Duchess's eye for colour and fabric, and by the cooking of chef/patron Alan Hill, who also oversees Beeley.

“Real Ale, Real Food, and seven beautiful bedrooms:
The Devonshire Arms at Pilsley is a traditional inn, owned by The Duke and Duchess of Devonshire. Serving well kept local cask ales and delicious freshly cooked food, the inn offers the perfect mix of modern comfort with traditional pub character.
Situated on the Duke and Duchess of Devonshire’s 35,000 acre Chatsworth Estate, The Devonshire Arms is ideally located for a relaxing getaway when visiting Chatsworth House and Gardens and all the delights of the Peak District.
Each light and cheerful bedroom is named after a farm on the Chatsworth Estate, and common to all are modern, en-suite bathrooms and a comfortable bed. Each room has its own character, chosen by The Duchess of Devonshire with a style full of rich colourful fabrics and little touches that make your stay extra special.
Alan Hill, Chef Patron for The Devonshire Arms at Pilsley, celebrates the abundance of good quality local produce, much of which comes from the Chatsworth estate - this is reflected in the quality of the food. The Devonshire Arms at Pilsley offers delicious, freshly cooked local dishes such as Pilsley Mixed Grill, Belly Pork Bubble and Squeak, Fresh Fish Pie... plus freshly made sandwiches.”
